Friends may have broadcast its final episode in 2004, but it’s still got people talking.

The latest discussion surrounds the friends’ political leanings, after Twitter user David Mack asked – which one of them would have voted for Donald Trump?

Working out how the friends would have voted in the 2016 US election is an intriguing debate, and it has blown up with attention on the social media site.

Mack suggests it’s Matt Le Blanc’s character Joey who would have voted for the current US president, but that he could see Jennifer Aniston’s Rachel voting for Trump’s daughter Ivanka if the opportunity arose.

But others passionately disagree, suggesting it could be Chandler, played by Matthew Perry, or Phoebe, Lisa Kudrow, who opted for the Republican – taking a sharp leap to the right after initially supporting Democrat Bernie Sanders.

Some have offered a rundown of the entire gang.

While others have even suggested none of them voted at all.

It’s a debate that may well rage on – but certainly an enjoyable one.
